The Grand Order of the Lost Mathom celebrates its fifth anniversary Saturday October 13th, with a grand party at Songburrow Hall! As part of the anniversary, we will host a number of competitions, suitable for cooks and entertainers! 

For signing up, see the contact information below. 

There are three competitions, and the rules are as follows.

1 The Grand Anniversary Menu Competition

Every hobbit party needs a splendid festive meal, and we plan on serving a lovely three-course dinner to our guests. However, we would love your help in composing it! So please send us your suggestions!

Rules:
  • Write down a 3-course meal suitable for our party. The menu needs to follow this format: Starter, main course and pudding. Also suggest drinks to go with each course.
  • Please try to keep the menu somewhat hobbity, and avoid modern-day food or ingredients that hobbits would likely not have access to.
  • Please try to keep your meal descriptions short, but tempting.
  • Send your meal suggestion to us no later than Thursday October 11th, 11:59PM BST/UK time (6:59PM servertime). See contact information below.
A jury will chose their favourite meal, which will be presented and served at the party. The winning cook also receives a grand prize!

2 The Grand Cake-baking Competition

Every anniversary party needs a festive anniversary cake! And this year, we ask Shire cooks to bake one for us and bring it to the party to be judged!

Rules:
  • There will be a limited number of spots in the competition. To enter, please sign up in advance by contacting us, see information below.
  • The competition will be run sometime during the party on October 13th.
  • When the competition starts, the cooks will be called up to provide information about the following:
  1. The name of the cake
  2. What the ingredients are
  3. What it tastes like
  • Please try to keep the menu somewhat hobbity, and avoid modern-day food or ingredients that hobbits would likely not have access to.
  • Please try to keep your cake descriptions short, but tempting.
A jury will choose their favourite cake, which will be served along with the tea. The winning cook also receives a grand prize!
